View In My Bible
38 "1You have heard that it was said, '2AN EYE FOR AN EYE, AND A TOOTH FOR A TOOTH.' 39 "But I say to you, do not resist an evil person; but 3whoever slaps you on your right cheek, turn the other to him also. 40 "If anyone wants to sue you and take your ashirt, let him have your bcoat also. 41 "Whoever cforces you to go one mile, go with him two. 42 "4Give to him who asks of you, and do not turn away from him who wants to borrow from you. 43 "5You have heard that it was said, '6YOU SHALL LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR 7and hate your enemy.' 44 "But I say to you, 8love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, 45 so that you may dbe 9sons of your Father who is in heaven; for He causes His sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous. 46 "For 10if you love those who love you, what reward do you have? Do not even the tax collectors do the same? 47 "If you greet only your brothers, what more are you doing than others? Do not even the Gentiles do the same? 48 "Therefore e11you are to be perfect, as your heavenly Father is perfect.
